    Okay, so my flock is only 3-ish days old [​IMG] but I am hoping to get a few more, just waiting on the store to get some different kinds. How old is too old to introduce new chicks? Thoughts on this? They'll all be housed together in the same brooder and eventually the same coop.

    I asked this last week [​IMG] I had some that were a wk-ish old and was running by TSC to see what they had in. I had 20 chicks at home and came back with 10 more! LOL They are all doing fine. I was told that a week maybe 2 is an ok age spacer, ya know what I mean? Good luck and enjoy!!
